Aether Prompt Winner: D. Wallace Peach

The ever-awesome D. Wallace Peach of Myths of the Mirror won the May 1st Aether Prompt with a powerful glimpse of magic amid dark modernity…


Dev headed to the quarry. The brotherhood was meeting there, getting riled up and talking guns, working up some powerful indignation. He wanted to fit in, to glory in the righteousness that electrified their veins.

The moon was a silver pond but the forest lay dark beneath the pines. He paused to get a bearing. Fireflies twinkled, and he cupped one in his hands. Not until he freed it, did he behold the fairy with golden wings.

If there were fairies, there were monsters. He backtracked home and called the police… because there might also be a God.


Congratulations! Now you’re in the running for the 2019 AETHEREAL ENGINEER WRITER SUPPORT PRIZE PACKAGE! How might she, or possibly you, perchance win such fabled treasure as this? Take a look at my weekly Aether Prompts and find out!
